What are Wall Street analysts saying about Constellation Brands stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Constellation Brands stock: 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "STZ confidently outlined the attractive growth story still ahead at its beer segment update in Chicago (1/16)." (1/16/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Constellation Brands lagged the industry in the past month as it slashed earnings outlook for fiscal 2019. The soft view stems from expectations of higher interest expense and softness in wine and spirits business. Notably, incremental interest expense related to investment in Canopy Growth is likely to reduce earnings per share by 25 cents in fiscal 2019. Further, lowered sales and operating income view for the wine and spirits segment is likely to weigh on earnings. Moreover, higher transportation, operating and marketing expenses hurt operating margin for beer segment in fiscal third quarter, which is likely to continue in fiscal 2019. However, the company is gaining from constant brand-building efforts, acquisitions and e-commerce initiatives. Solid earnings and sales surprise history also reflects its inherent strength. The company is also poised to gain from exposure in the cannabis space with its investment in Canopy Growth." (1/14/2019) 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are convinced that CGC is the best way to play the rapidly growing cannabis market and investors should begin to fully reflect that value and CGC’s prospects, rather than penalizing STZ for the cash carrying costs of the investment, in our view. This makes STZ a truly compelling BUY. VALUATION: Constellation trades at 15.8x our estimate of EV/EBITDA, no doubt as “cheap” as STZ has been in the past five years. If one takes the POV that CGC could double to a $20 billion market cap in 18-24 months (our personal view) then Constellation will have a $10 billion investment as an add-back to EV and thus on the basis of core EBITDA of around $3,000, could trade at 20x that or over $300 based on FY20 EBITDA and the equity value of CGC. We’ve haircut that today but still view it as a more likely than not scenario." (1/9/2019) Has Constellation Brands been receiving favorable news coverage?
